The Friends of the Vineyard Haven Library have made available reusable polypropylene bags featuring the library logo, to help reduce the use of plastic bags by library patrons. The Friends have contributed to make the bags available for only $1. The colorful eco-friendly bags can be used to carry books and DVDs home from the library, or may be used for groceries and other personal items.
This year, in honor of Earth Day, the Friends are offering an additional incentive to purchase the bags. Purchase a bag for $1 between April 1st and April 21st, and you may enter a drawing to win a limited-edition sterling silver library charm. The charms are also available for sale at the library for $74.99, with proceeds supporting the Friends' work on behalf of the library. The Drawing will be held on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2010.
Sales of the bags and charms help support Library Children’s Programs, the Summer Reading Program, and other Friends-sponsored events.
